So here starts the adventure that is rescuing a poorly treated laser.
This will serve to be my rebuild/rescue log. I will try to have as many pictures as possible to document progress.
Here she is as I first received her.
As you can see, VERY dirty even the tube was covered in a thick brown layer of shmoo.
I started this project with the reality that I may have to replace everything.
Thankfully what I have to start with was free.
sorry for the fuzzy pics. hopefully the next ones will be better.
